Once upon a time the poster child of the hot, can’t-miss new industry of consumer 3D printing, MakerBot has been on a long, slow decline ever since Stratasys vastly overpaid for it in 2013. Founding CEO Bre Pettis took off after pocketing millions, and then his replacement, Jenny Lawton, also bailed. And now, after failing to make the company relevant again by diversifying it into education and enterprise, CEO Jonathan Jaglom, installed by his dad, Stratasys’s chairman of the board, has called it quits.
